Happy Birthday Cathy!

Today is a very special post for me.  A group of friends have organized a birthday blog hop for our dear friend Cathy Weber.  You might know her from her blog Empty Nest Crafter.

Cathy was one of the very first friends I met blogging.  Although I've never met her in person she is always inspiring me with her designs and encouraging me to do my best.  We met through the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenges and Blog Waltzes.  Cathy was a big stand out in my mind - always leaving me a positive comment letting me know I was on the right track. 

I made this card especially for you Cathy - with some fresh new Papertrey stamps (see I listen!!!   Let's take it to the next level!!) - and colored in some of the bright raspberry fizz colors that you love!!  I know you like it clean and simple so I tried ot keep it under control!!!  Thank you for always being so sweet!!  Happy Birthday My Friend!!

Please stop by the following blogs to see the other beautiful cards that have been created to celebrate our friendship with Cathy!

Your coloring...
I'm just in awe!
And Cathy is the first person I met when I started blogging...
I don't know what I would do without her...
she's one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable...
has a heart too big for words!
And she does like her pink and brights...
so she will absolutely love this!
Just gorgeous! :)

I am just screaming out loud at this beautiful card and the absolute surprise of this blog hop for my birthday. Me, a blog hop? I feel like a movie star or something! You bought the sweet peas and colored them in my favorite colors too. Honestly, this is so pretty, and to think I didn't suspect a thing! Thank you so much, what a great friend you are. This has turned out to be a great birthday!

This card is just stunning. Your coloring is absolutely fabulous. I have lots of copics, but my daughter always does the tricky coloring and shading, because it is too hard for me. So, I know how much work this is. What a fun party we are having.
